First Use Case - Beta Test Steps

  • Testers visited the TSDW website and registered with the system to create an account
  • Testers visited the Data Request web page and entered their requests for the WestJump Base08b dataset
  • Each request was stored in the database
  • The system determined whether or not each request could be automatically filled or had to be manually assembled
  • The system sent emails to the appropriate TSDW team members to notify them of the data requests
  • TSDW team members assembled the dataset requests (copied the relevant data files onto hard drives)
  • The datasets (hard drives) were delivered to the beta testers
  • The system updated the dataset requests to reflect their “filled” status
slide30

First Use Case - Beta Test Steps (cont’d)

  • Using the delivered datasets, testers ran the models and generated results
  • Testers returned the model output results to the 3SDW
  • The test results were assessed by TSDW team members
  • Testing outcomes were summarized for the May 3SAQS Technical Workshop
  • The TSDW team refines the dataset ordering, download, packaging, and delivery system according to lessons learned
  • The TSDW team develops the nextUse Case testing scenario(s)

emissions improvements summary
Emissions Improvements Summary
  • Made obvious improvements identified during screening of WestJumpAQMS modeling
  • Gathered all available data
      • What data were available at the states/agencies that we can use for emissions processing?
      • Stack testing data for VOCs and PM speciation
      • Shapefiles for oil and gas sources, agricultural sources, industrial sources
      • Temporal profiles and chemical speciation data
  • Prioritized inventory sources and target potential improvements

Three State Air Quality Study

high profile high impact anthropogenic emissions sources in co wy ut 3 state counties
High profile/high impact anthropogenic emissions sources in CO, WY, UT 3-state counties

    • Oil and gas sources (drill rigs, compressor engines,heaters)
    • On-road mobile
    • Rail (diesel class 1 locomotives)
    • Industrial and residential natural gas combustion

Three State Air Quality Study

3saqs spatial allocation data updates
3SAQS Spatial Allocation Data Updates
  • New Surrogates
    • Replaced NLCD 2001 with NCLD 2006 landuse/landcover surrogates
    • Replaced 1999 FEMA building square footage surrogates with 2010 FEMA-HAZUSv2.1 building square footage surrogates
    • Replaced TIGER line rail mileage surrogates with 2012 NTAD rail density surrogate
    • New ERTAC rail yard surrogate
    • Updated CO livestock surrogates with swine CAFOs
    • New WY livestock surrogate with CAFO point locations
    • New VMT-weighted roadway surrogates for CO on-road sources
  • Updated assignments/cross-referencing
    • Changed allocation of ATV/ORV/snowmobiles from rural to forest land
    • Reassigned livestock sources from total ag to pasture land
    • Reassigned fertilizer sources from total ag to crop land (except animal waste spreading)

Three State Air Quality Study

3saqs temporal allocation data updates
3SAQS Temporal Allocation Data Updates
  • Calculated 2008 temperature-dependent monthly and daily profiles for residential wood combustion (RWC) sources
  • Updated diurnal profile for RWC sources
  • Calculated 2008 temperature and wind speed-dependent daily profiles for livestock NH3 sources
  • Computed monthly profiles for residential natural gas combustion
  • Updated the diurnal profile assignments for off-road recreational vehicles (to decrease overnight emissions)

Three State Air Quality Study

3saqs other emissions data updates
3SAQS Other Emissions Data Updates
  • Reassigned sources from the non-point inventory as fugitive dust in order to apply transport fractions
  • Converted the on-road mobile inventory data to a format that works with standard SMOKE
  • Corrections for double counting of some oil and gas sources in the South San Juan and Permian basins and Southern Ute tribal land

Three State Air Quality Study

co roadway layers
CO Roadway Layers

2010 TIGER Line

  • Urban/Rural + Primary/Secondary
  • Weighting by urban/rural areas of a county
  • Includes only Interstates, arterials, and collectors

2008 CDPHE VMT

  • VMT by road segment for highways and major roads
  • Weighting by VMT
  • Includes an additional layer of major roads (local)

Three State Air Quality Study

co roadway layers1
CO Roadway Layers

CDPHE VMT Shapefile distinguishes areas with higher traffic flow. Without the VMT weighting, the emissions will be allocated uniformly across all cells that intersect with roads.

  • Current Approach/WestJump:
    • Onroad inventory SCC codes distinguish between urban and rural sources, which allows for spatial allocation to urban/rural roads
    • Local road SCCs are using population as a spatial surrogate

TIGER data don’t have enough information to represent that some sections of the county have higher traffic volume on the primary roads

More of the on-road emissions should go here, than here.

VMT

Three State Air Quality Study

co roadway layers2
CO Roadway Layers

CDPHE VMT Shapefile distinguishes areas with higher traffic flow. Without the VMT weighting, the emissions will be allocated uniformly across all cells that intersect with roads.

  • Update for 3SAQS:
    • Ignore urban/rural distinction in the SCC code and instead weight the roadway surrogates by VMT to take advantage of the better resolution in road segment activity in the CDPHE data
    • Allocate local roads using the major road Shapefile from CDPHE, weighted by VMT

TIGER data don’t have enough information to represent that some sections of the county have higher traffic volume on the primary roads

More of the on-road emissions should go here, than here.

wy cafo shapefile
WY CAFO Shapefile
  • DWQ permitting database includes mostly CAFOs and a few swine operations
  • Locations are provided in the database but not types of animals

Three State Air Quality Study

wy cafo shapefile1
WY CAFO Shapefile

Several WY counties only have a single CAFO in this database

If these data are used for spatial allocation, need to limit which SCCs in these counties will be allocated to these single point locations

Three State Air Quality Study

case study fremont county wy cafo
Case Study: Fremont County, WY CAFO

GIS Shapefile Google Earth Imagery

Largest sources of the Fremont County NEI08 NH3 inventory are cattle.

Other sources are probably not associated with the CAFO

Three State Air Quality Study

wy cafos summary
WY CAFOs Summary
  • Shapefile can be used to allocate livestock emissions to modeling grids
    • Two categories of CAFO identified in the Shapefile: “CAFO” and “Swine”
    • CAFO category will be used for cattle (except for finishing operations on range/pasture SCCs)
    • Swine category will be used for swine
  • Underlying assumption in using these CAFO point data is that they represent all locations of cattle and swine sources in a county
  • In the absence of CAFO information, we will use the pasture land surrogate for other animal types (horses, poultry, turkeys, etc)
